If you’re new to 2inspired or a loyal reader but missed it, take a tour with me now to see what everyone’s been saying about the blog:
Sophia on Life Lessons from Me Five Years Ago: I can’t tell you how much this helped me.
Trust another Asian to be able to finally understand what it’s like to desperately want approval from the people you love the most. I’ve lived my whole life trying to please my father, even though it’s not possible.
And I just took step 9 myself – I quit a graduate program two months in when I realized I really didn’t want to do it. It was painful and felt ragged at the time, but so necessary.
Lisa on My Grandma’s Hands: That is a very emotive & heartfelt account of your relationship with your grandma. Well done for putting it out there.
Raechel on Sacrifice, Sweat & Sweet Surrender: Great post! If we surrender our dreams and plans, then we may be surprised by things we would never even have thought possible to dream about. As writers we need to base our self-worth on how we feel, not what others think because it can be a hard world out there for us…..
Bridget on The I’m Not Worthy Syndrome: I’m a big Cheryl Richardson fan too. Her book Stand Up for Your Life changed my m.o. and my life has been steadily getting better ever since! More opportunities to do work I love and more money for doing it. I stumbled upon your blog researching Cheryl’s current web presence. I haven’t created my own blog yet, but I will be soon. I also want to inspire others to live their dreams but I come at it from a Feldenkrais, Improv, EFT perspective.
Minnie on Do You Have Balls?: I’m glad you disagree with Terry Fator about luck! I also believe luck plays important roles in our endeavors. The other things (skills, talent, courage) are important too, and are more within our controls. Perhaps luck is the embodiment of “things beyond our control.” That’s why we need to belief, as you pointed out. Not only believing in ourselves but also belief that the things beyond our control will carry us through our endeavors. Anyway… just my random thoughts conceived from your insightful writings.

Psychology of Success on Fear of Asking for What You Want: My father told me that there are only two answers that a person can give you when you ask a question, “Yes or No.”
He told him that his father told him the same thing. I never forgot that and it made asking for things a lot easier.
Pochp on Fear of Asking for What You want: Very helpful post.
Knowwhatandwhere on The Good, The Bad, The Ugly: Great article and so very true – except for #5 in my particular case. Running your own business is demanding in many ways. But I still believe that there is nothing more exciting than being on this journey – it is a roller-coaster…
Jonalyn on Giving It Up Ain’t So Bad: Hi! i love the blog. i am kinda on the horizons right now. still undecided of things. hope I can sort things out sooner. it’s a nice blog! smile!
